Mindfulness skills to connect with past injustices and current social justice issues

This workshop will use Dr. Angel Acosta's 400 Years Project, which centers contemplative practice around the history of inequality in the US.

The goal of this workshop is to engage with, acknowledge, and awaken ourselves to the dynamics of racism and oppression at all levels. We will learn how to apply mindfulness skills to increase our personal resilience and relate in more sustainable ways to the ongoing issues of social injustice.

This session will have a mix of practices, including:

  • Mindfulness and compassion practices;

  • Walking through the 400 Years Timeline;

  • Connecting with other participants through conversation and reflection;

  • Learning about resources to continue the work beyond the session.
